Arts in the Village Gallery presents Illuminate, the October Featured Artist Exhibit showcasing the shimmering felted designs of Susan Trask and the vibrant mixed media paintings of Karen Watson. As the seasons change and days grow shorter, the colors and textures of autumn Illuminate the Gallery in this unique show.
Susan Trask's fall collection includes luminous additions to her felted fiber blends. Bamboo, silk, and metallic sparkles enhance vivid colors and abstract designs. Many of these one-of-a-kind creations start with iridescent silk fabric as the base. Large rectangular wraps, extra-long scarves, and reversible triangular shapes are some of the exciting features of this season that illuminate the wardrobe.
Karen Watson creates textured and richly colored canvases using acrylic paint, collaged papers and often times three dimensional found objects to provoke a sense of time, space and memory. This month’s exhibit derives from the distinctive air and colors of autumn, as well as elemental minerals and crystals that are lit from within to add a unique and contemplative atmosphere to a room or personal space.
Meet Susan, Karen and other gallery artists, and enjoy live music, light fare and wine at the Gallery Reception on Saturday, October 17th from 5-8 pm.
